The Southern Highland Craft Guild Celebrates National Quilting Day
March 14 - March 16
National Quilting Day is Saturday, March 16, 2024. Guild member and quilter Connie Brown will be demonstrating hand-quilting skills in the lobby of the Folk Art Center March 14, 15, and 16, 2024. Guild member, fabric artist and quilter, Jude Stuecker, will join her on Saturday, March 16th with demonstrations.
Brown is also a quilt historian and AQS Quilt Appraiser. On March 14-16 a selection of antique and vintage quilts from her collection will be displayed. Each day at 11am and 1pm, Brown will give an informal talk about the quilts, inviting visitors to ask questions. This is an opportunity to discuss fabrics, patterns and other clues that quilt historians use to help date a quilt.
Contemporary quilts can be found throughout the Folk Art Center in the shop and second floor galleries. Admission to the Folk Art Center is free. The Folk Art Center is located at Milepost 382 of the Blue Ridge Parkway. Headquarters to the Southern Highland Craft Guild, the Center also houses three exhibition spaces, a library, a craft shop and a Blue Ridge Parkway information desk and bookstore.
